Christmas 2012

Christmas Eve
We attempted to teach the Walker grandkids the nativity story by having them act it out.  Ben was uncooperative and the costumes need some work (my fault), but the kids were pretty cute nonetheless.
 Ben cheered up when he got to play with this super friendly golden retriever puppy that my in-laws were babysitting/hiding (he was to be a Christmas surprise for some friends).  What is it about this breed that is so stinkin' cute!?  
 Kaiya decorated some cookies for Santa by emptying two jars of sprinkles.

Christmas Day 

Since we video taped the whole procession, we neglected to take too many pictures Christmas morning.  But here are a couple shots of the magic.  Among other things, Santa gave Kaiya a puppy... as real a puppy as she'll ever get, anyway :) 

 Santa also brought Ben his own little car which he's been driving around the basement for three days (alongside Kaiya on her new birthday bike).  We have about 16" of snow outside, so we just might keep all the new outside toys downstairs 'til spring.

 Santa immediately regretted giving both kids harmonicas in their stockings.  It sounds like Alcatraz up in here.

Chuckled about the harmonicas. Live and learn. :)

Looks like you guys had a great Christmas... but did the baby Jesus get sent down river only to be raised in the Pharoah's palace?

Looks like a fun Christmas - love the Disney-Princess dress on "Mary". :)
